Hi Janine, no, I'm a librarian, I do web stuff for Chch city libraries. I'm interested in how people use online resources, in particular in managing illness because of my own, and how/where they access information. For example, what makes an online community successful, or not. Take Patients Like Me for example, they have effectively built a large community of sufferers through the simple idea of aggregating health information from actual patients.

Thanks Janine, I actually have many sources of information about ME but am interested in this as a NZer and technologist - to be honest I thought that Ning had pretty much disappeared. I work in Christchurch and live just outside, in West Melton.

That would be great.  Do you know how to get hold of me outside this forum?

HI Janine,
I may be wrong but would I be right in thinking there has not been much activity on this site recently or am I missing something?

sounds like a great idea. I look forward to it. :-)

Hi Janine
No I dont know Jayne it would be good to hook up with her if I can help. i must admit as an occupational therapist and a life coach I really do believe that there so much that can be done even before chronic care is required in terms of supporting people with healthier coping mechanisms, stress and anxiety management, support with life balance. Not sure what has been happening in chronic care. What is Flinders? Many thanks, Liz

Hi Janine
Have not explored yet but will over the coming weeks. Hope this resource helps others. If I have anything to contribute I certainly will. Many thanks. Take care, Liz

Hi Janine,
Things going well in Whangarei - just finishing off my Masters.
Flinders is still being used in Manaia with CarePlus.
Look forward to seeing the changes to the tools.
Kind Regards
